They say that you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Why not welcome some amazing dietitians and entrepreneurs into your ears and be inspired to make 2023 your best year yet?
In this post, I’ll share my list of the best dietitian podcasts that I recommend you check out. From learning the skills we weren’t taught in school (ahem, SEO) to an opportunity to expand our mindset, these podcasters will have you hooked, too.
New around here? Welcome! I’m Holly Larson, registered dietitian, and nutrition copywriter. I ghostwrite for some big names in the nutrition world and am also a copywriting mentor in The RD Blog Club.
Grab your earbuds – it is time to start listening.
The Dietitian Side Hustle
Katie Piercy Dodd is the inspiring host of The Dietitian Side Hustle podcast. Her show was launched while still working as a full-time employee and growing revenue streams on the side. These days she is celebrating her 1-year anniversary of being in entrepreneurship full-time.
Katie hosts short, actionable podcast episodes on all things money and generating income. She is also brave and shares vulnerable episodes, such as this one, about mental health and entrepreneurship. Katie and I also chatted on this episode when I first launched my writing course. Thanks, Katie!

The Unconventional RD
Erica Julson is an RD, entrepreneur and SEO wiz. (In fact, she is the creator of SEO Made Simple – affiliate link).
The Unconventional RD podcast offers tips and strategies on all things website marketing, business, and more. She also interviews RDs doing all sorts of things in her business, and I find it really inspiring to learn from other movers and shakers in the field.
One of her recent episodes walked us through earning more by doing less; I know that I’m guilty of trying to do it all, so this one was a great reminder to try things but to also reflect, see what is bringing you income and joy and continue to prune out the things that aren’t.

Make More Money as a Dietitian Podcast
Christine Dyan Thompson is a force to be reckoned with. Her podcast offers deep wisdom about why we are where we are (hint: it’s us) and who is responsible for cultivating our own amazing, wealthy future (hint: also us).
Christine’s podcast episodes come with practical tips served with a hearty side of tough love.

No Food Rules Podcast
Colleen Christensen is an RD and has her own booming Intuitive Eating membership program. Her podcast is about all things IE. And while it is directed more towards her potential clients than dietitian professionals, I have learned a LOT listening to it. We just weren’t taught this kind of stuff when I was in school a gazillion years ago but I think it is incredibly important.
In this episode, I became enamored with the idea of doing a color consult so that I can feel more confident in what I’m wearing: featuring Lindsey Myers of Created Colorful. I’m halfway through the process and can’t wait for the official verdict on what colors best suit me!

Freelance Dietitian Podcast
Toronto-based dietitian, entrepreneur, and freelance writer Julia Zakrzewski has a robust library of podcast episodes about business, writing, and all things entrepreneurship. Julia has episodes interviewing some pretty big names in the field (and smaller names like yours truly!). Julia also has produced solo podcast episodes where she discusses tougher subjects like losing a client.

Marie Forleo is not a dietitian, but you might know her from her amazing book, Everything Is Figureoutable.
Marie’s podcasts are charming, solution-oriented, and no longer than they need to be. Helpful, when you only have so long to listen! Her recent episode Stretched Too Thin? Do This Before You Burnout… Or Worse was a timely episode for me as I think about how I’d like this year in my life and business to pan out.

The Health Pro to CEO
Orly Wachter is a registered dietitian and coach who helps her clients to find their dream business. There is no cookie-cutter solution to the business that brings you the most joy and profit. Cultivating your business requires saying no, having boundaries, and getting over the fear of showing up online. She covers this and more on her show!
Orly was kind enough to invite me on her podcast to record an episode about Creating Connection and Conversions Through Storytelling.

Even more dietitian podcasts
I haven’t even had a chance to listen to all of the options of podcasts hosted by dietitians. A few others that are on my shortlist to check out include:
- The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast hosted by Jennifer McGurk
- The Nutrition and Ambition Podcast by Jo White
- The Practice Revolution by Javier and Marissa Carlin
- Weight Inclusive Innovators hosted by Hannah Turnbull and Morgan Sinclair
- The Leveraged Practice by Stephanie N Clairmont
What did I miss?
While there are very few downsides to working from home as a dietitian, IMO, one of the few is that there are fewer opportunities to listen to podcasts. And my dog Teddy seems to be annoyed if I wear earbuds while we’re walking together – stinker! I do like listening to podcasts while riding on my Peloton.
